To this day, Cleopatra proves to be one of the most important and controversial figures in ancient history. Married to both of her brothers, the first of which she defeated in a civil war before ordering the second's murder, Cleopatra would also have affairs with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony and nearly tear the Roman Empire in two. However, author Stacy Schiff believes history has given Cleopatra a bad rap and sets out to tell Egyptian queen's true story.

I picked this up thinking I probably won't finish it, but it was phenomenal research and made for a wonderful walk in the history of Cleopatra. I finished it having more respect for the woman she was - in the period in which she lived. She was ahead of her time and seemed to accomplish more than a thousand like-minded women over the ages; thus her name stood the test of time. Highly recommended if you enjoy historical research.

Claudia Schiff writes brilliantly and beautifully about this fascinating historical character, Cleopatra. The book is well-researched and informative. I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s occasional, drily witty observations. Please read this book - it’s wonderful!

Very good biography - very moving story. I felt like Cleopatra was an old friend by the end of it. Robin Miles is an excellent narrator too.
